2005 Volvo S40 2.4i

Asked by Jul 25, 2013 at 12:31 PM about the 2005 Volvo S40

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Volvo told me it is not possible to know what struts are on the car originally until you
take off the tire and look at the strut itself.  If they are Niva met? spelling struts - you
must replace them with Niva met struts. If not you can put plain struts on the car.
However the mounting brackets only fit the type of strut originally placed.
Where do I buy Niva met Struts?

Never heard of the brand. I'd call Volvo back. Instead of purchasing a strut assembly why don't you just purchase the strut itself and keep all the original hardware. Here is a write up on someone replacing theirs....http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?175309-Write-Up-Front-Struts-and-Springs-Installation.
